I still don't fully understand the rationale for moving system packages out of System.

That would be because system packages haven't been moved out of System there's no plan to ever move them.

What's happened is a change to avoid people (GNUstep newbies in particular) accidentally overwriting system packages with their non- system locally built versions.

Packagers should continue to provide their packages to install in the appropriate place for their system ... eg. I'd expect the core GNUstep stuff to be installed in the System domain on an Etilie-live CD.
